Im not real hip on the factory center cap's for the H2.. If It was me I would run with out them.. Or run one's like I do!!!
I really like the way yours looks, but I'm not real keen on spending $40 on new lug nuts and then whatever the plastic ones cost and then finding the caps themselves.
I like the way DaPlumber's looks. I'd run caps like his or none at all, which also looks good.
and unfortunately for you, that also means new studs all around as those lugnuts are metric.
No they are NOT metric!!!!
someone has come up with externally threaded std lugnuts?
You can find them on Ebay....
dorman offers them for conversions. std threads for the stock lug nuts and then the metric outer for the plastic caps.
The factory lug nuts that came with my H2 rims are Metric.
...........Thank fully the center caps are not Metric though
I voted "I like Chocolate" because you didn't have "DaPlumbers or nekkid"
so anyone have a part # for the "conversion" Nuts? or a metric stud to fit a front D60? i've got the latemodel studs in the rear, and I just run the black plastic caps over the lugnuts. want to do the same in the front.
So you need some help with your home work?? Look on ebay for lugnuts!!! eBay item:CHEVY TRUCK 1965-87 LUG NUTS 8 LUG 9/16 GMC WHEELS 32 (#180073591709) Ok, I looked it up for ya...
yeah I'm stupid, thanks. I tried looking them up and coudln't find anything under lugnuts. for some reason didn't think of trying the two words separately!
I have to say I really ike the look of those black rings that you used as caps. What did you use to make them and hold them on? Probably less likely to collect water etc than the modded GM caps.
I have h2 rims sitting in my basement that are just itching to get on my '91v3500. Will probably have to wait for a small lift to go on first so I can clear 35's. Need to keep this truck city-friendly.
daplumber's or none at all
I don't have center caps on my H2's and like them that way. Just one more thing to rub off. Now, if I didn't wheel it, I would get the center caps like DaPlumber's.
They just snap into place like the cheapie hub caps you see.
I like Da Plumber's setup too. When I had my 95 K2500 WT I replaced the stock steelies for rockcrawlers, and threw the stock caps, lugnuts, and lugnut covers in a bag and put them in storage. Pretty sure I still have em. I guess it's good I'm a packrat. H2's are everywhere down here, I'm going to have to grab a set.
